My fiance fell in love with this car when one of her best friends bought one. I was skeptical until I drove it. It has a nice sure footed ride, and fairly comfortable seats. Plenty of room, except for luggage, and good acceleration. I love the cup holder up high on the driver's side of the dashboard, but wonder why they didn't put one on the passenger side. The sound system is great.
My worries are that problems I'm beginning to notice may get worse. The blower fan makes noises now and then, and the engine/transmission is making noises when cold. Thankfully Nissan has extended the transmission warranty, because as the sales manager told us when we purchased the car, "they've had a few problems with the CVT".
Our first horn failed after about two years, and when the replacement was installed, we realized the original one had been defective because it was too quiet.
My pet peeves about this car are as follows: The static charge and shock I get every time I get out of it, the keyless entry system that never seems to work the same way twice, the automatic climate control system (why does it ALWAYS turn on the A/C unit even in winter), the poorly placed iPod plug in location, the useless visors, a way too sensitive car alarm, and the tiny poorly placed arm rest that's useless to me.
If you ask my fiance how she feels about the car, she would have a much different view than mine here; she really likes her "Zippy" as she named it.
I've owned two Nissans now, and my son has a Versa. My general opinion is they're just OK, but since a bad experience with the dealership we bought the Cube from, I don't plan on buying another Nissan. I don't know if we'll keep this car until it's paid for; it may be about time to unload it before real issues crop up. We'll see.
